Moyou 10k Nail Art Challenge: Ice / Fire

Hello readers,
Today I have some stamped nail art which I am super proud of to show you.  This look was inspired by the Moyou 10k nail art challenge them of Ice / Fire.  I chose the ice aspect as one of the designs on the Moyou Pro XL 06 plate reminded me of the 'crackled' pattern of ice left on everything after an freezing rain storm we had last spring.  Here's a close up look at some spring leaf buds from my garden encased in that crackled ice.

I tried to translate that pattern into a cool icy mani.  I started with a base of Finger Lickin' Lacquer Moose.  Then I added a coat of Emerald & Ash Moonlit Snow.  I dabbed some OPI Lasy Friday Night on the tips and finally stamped the whole thing with Color Club What A Drag.

I love the final effect. In direct sunlight the holo from Moose and the flecks from Moonlit Snow shine through but in the shade the stamped patter really comes to life.  Photos show the mani described with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural lighting.

Happy polishing,
